Personal Response Systems in Electronic Classrooms

PRS, short for Personal Response System, is a technology which allows real time polling of students for assessment or to gauge understanding. UCIT at the University of Cincinnati has standardized the use of PRS utilizing Turning Technologies' TurningPoint software. Students respond to questions either using an RF transmitter known as a clicker, or using their laptop or smart phone, known to TurningPoint as ResponseWare.
